TripAdvisor, the leading source for travel reviews and advice, is offering enhanced business listings for hotels, bed and breakfasts, and innkeepers.

The TripAdvisor Business Listing allows properties to add key info to a listing including a phone number, email address and website URL making it easier for potential guests to make direct contact.
The pricing structure of the listing is much like other directories in that it is an annual subscription and the cost is tied to the number of rooms in the property. The price starts at $600, but TripAdvisor is offering a 50% discount for new listings through February 2010 (next week is the last week of February!)
